Homework is a really important part of learning at Parrs Wood. Homework done regularly throughout your time at school can be the equivalent of an extra year of study. Pupils who do their homework regularly do well in lessons, tests and examinations.

Homework can help you:

  1. Practise new skills
  2. Develop study skills
  3. Prepare for the next lesson
  4. Revise for tests and exams
  5. Complete coursework and longer pieces of writing
  6. To experience different ways of learning

Homework set should be written in your planner with details of when it is to be handed in. This will help you organise your work and time. Try to do your homework at the same time each day in a quiet place with no distractions. Plan ahead to make the best use of your time and don’t leave projects, coursework or homework to the last minute. Always do your homework as carefully and as neatly as you can.

  1. Enter the room quietly and take out your equipment
  2. Be polite at all times
  3. Always listen in silence when someone is talking
  4. Hold your hand up to ask or answer questions
  5. Follow instructions from staff
  6. Value learning by staying on task
